tatic struct file *init_listener(struct seccomp_filter *filter)
{
struct file *ret = ERR_PTR(-EBUSY);
struct seccomp_filter *cur;

for (cur = current->seccomp.filter; cur; cur = cur->prev) {
if (cur->notif)
goto out;
}

...

/* Installing a second listener in the chain should EBUSY */
EXPECT_EQ(user_trap_syscall(__NR_getpid,
SECCOMP_FILTER_FLAG_NEW_LISTENER),
-1);
EXPECT_EQ(errno, EBUSY);


Why does this limit exist? Since the fd is tied to a specific filter,
I don't see conflicts about having multiple USER_NOTIF filters on one
task -- the monitor's response will either fake it or continue it, so
there is no "composition" needed? I must be missing something.

But isn't that already tracked by the VFS? i.e. there is a one-to-one
mapping from the "struct file *" returned by "anon_inode_getfile()" and
the "struct filter" (though we do not presently save it in the filter)
and the VFS tracks how many userspace fds are attached to that struct
file via ->f_count (i.e. f_count reaching zero is what triggers calling
seccomp_notify_release()).

In trying to write up an example patch for this, though, yeah, I don't
see how to do the locking. There is the "file" part, which is effectively
held by both any task's fd table and by the seccomp filter.

I suspect the issue is that the private_data can't be the
seccomp_filter. The "validity" of the mapping between kernel and user
needs to be tracked externally:

struct seccomp_notification_pipe
{
struct filter *filter;
struct file *file;
};

But I still can't see where to put the lock or refcount....
